Just finished The Mansion by @ezekielboone
and out from @atriabooks
- and am now 💯% sure I'm never buying an Alexa for my house! I rated the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5 stars! Full review will be on my blog (link in profile) closer to the publication date.
The Mansion tells a story about three young friends - Emily, Billy, and Shawn - who are brought together after years of separation to help build an AI (artificial intelligence) in a once grand historic mansion. The book is complex and has a lot going on in it, as it involves a love triangle, crazy tech, family drama, alcoholism, domestic violence, and even some literal skeletons in a closet! ☠️
This book reminded me a bit of the 2001 movie Thir13en Ghosts. JP Delaney's book The Girl Before also came to mind. It was a bit long and I had hoped for a bit more of a technological mystery, but this novel's strength is really the characters. I stayed with it because the characters were engaging and felt multi-dimensional. Thanks to the publisher and author for the e-galley!
